Hello. In deciding whether to grant the request by one parent for an out of state move of the residence of a child, the court considers what is the best interest of the child. A multitude of factors are considered. I urge you to seek attorney counsel and advice in this matter. It appears you will have multiple post-divorce issues regarding your former spouse to address. Some attorneys, myself included, will confer for free, no charge, initially. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys, myself included, will provide a reduced fee for need. All the best to you and your child.

The financial reason likely alone would not be enough, but it is certainly one part of the argument. You will need to argue that moving is in the best interests of your daughter. You will have the burden to show this with evidence.
